Really? I don't think so. Comparing the Jews in Germany circa 1930's to the jihad of today's Muslims is insane. The Muslim world is bent on world domination with Sharia law. How is that in any way comparable with the Jews of Germany? Think again. We are dealing with an enemy that is evil to it's core. The devil incarnate. We had better wake up to that fact or else.
This battle has been going on for 1400 years. You know how folks who lean atheist often say, "Religion causes more wars ... " well ... name one.
WWI? No. WWII? No. The Korean war? Viet Nam? No and no. The Napoleonic Wars? Nope. The Civil War? No, albeit the abolition of slavery was a purely Christian, Western occurance. Westerners tend to assume a slave-free status not remembering that the reason that status exists is specifically because of a Christian-centered culture and society.
As for Marx's describing religion as the "opiate of the people," then why is Communism atheistic? You'd think Communist leaders would love to be able to lull the populace with an opiate. Though their new opiate religion is environmentalism ... !
Religious wars are rare. But inevitable. Western society wants to believe that all religions basically carry the same message, that we can all live-and-let-live. However, it is a lie -- religions differ widely in their messages. The "live and let live" ethic within attempting to follow the 10 Commandments and snubbing things like envy, covetousness, lust, gluttony, sloth, pride, anger, and avarice. Societies where folks pursued that Judeo-Christian ethic, while not perfect, have thrived and created the freedom-respecting West we know now.
Islam seeks to destroy Christianity, to subjugate it. Christianity, on the other hand, is perfectly okay with letting Islam have its own nations and countries to live their Sharia law as they please. The West says, "When you come here, you leave those laws of slavery back where you came from; they're meaningless here." Islam is trying to change that. Islam wants, for example, to be able to enslave its women in chadors here in the U.S., and have their "legal" recourse against those women resisting, which might include stoning or any of a number of things.
It's a religious war. The elephant in the living room.
